Robert Gordon on Valentine's Day

Robert Gordon, the Rockabilly Bad Boy (his own designation, as far as I can tell), was in fine voice tonight at the Turning Point in Piermont, New York. Backed by a incredibly tight trio, Gordon seemed anything but bad. Words like playful and fun come to mind, as Gordon mugged, strutted, and charmed the packed house.

Bouche Douce and I enjoyed a romantic evening together at the show, feeling - and looking - younger, and more in love than most of the crowd present. Plus, they were all sloppy drunk.

Gordon's Elvis Presley meets Bela Lugosi swagger was in ample evidence, as he sang hits, covers, and some new tunes, taking requests from the audience and dispensing with his E-Z read set list. (The man literally held up a laminated placard with his set list printed in gigantic letters, lamenting, "This is what happens when you get old.")

Check back for pics from the show, coming soon!

La Bouche Douce is so pretty, I can't imagine her looking younger! She's like a walking Neutrogena commercial. Move over Mischa Barton! I am so happy for you guys.
